Dust Off Your Dreams

I'm in the middle of it
Taking orders from the man
But I'm ready to quit waiting tables if I can
So remember my name when you see it up in lights
You'll know it was the same girl you didn't tip tonight

Look at me when I'm talking
I'm not like the other girls with their heels and stockings
Matching noses, lips and breasts care of some old doc and
Yes, I am better than the rest so why aren't you watching?

Dust off your dreams, Emilie
Dust off your dreams, Emilie

Drop by my office at six, he says I'll get you in the flicks
Yeah, I'll make you a star, can't you see my fancy car
And my designer clothes, a harmless little kiss
Could get you in the picture shows

Yeah I'm in the middle of it
Taking orders from the man
But I'm ready to quit

Yeah I'm in the middle of it
Taking orders from the man
But I'm ready to quit

Dust off your dreams, Emilie
Dust off your dreams, Emilie

Dust off your dreams, Emilie
Dust off your dreams, Emilie

    General CommentI always thought it was "Dust off your dreams and believe"

    But it sounds like she is saying "Emily"

    However, I do like "dust off your dreams and believe" better :-)
